Head over to Brixton, the birthplace of David Bowie and get your Instagram snap in front of his mural on Brixton Road. Dressed up in his iconic lightning bolt make-up from his 1973 album, it’s so worth the 10-minute walk to find this artistic tribute.
Or get lost within Brixton market, loaded with 140 retailers and restaurants, you’ll find dishes that span across continents. But look out for the Raclette at Alpes, their mouth-watering melted cheese spooned over a plate of potatoes, meats and salad is godly.
To end your day, take another 15-minute walk to visit Brockwell Park and check out stunning views of London’s skyline. Grab your picnic bites from the Brixton market and chill out with your mates with a cold beer. It’s the perfect Brixton day out for budget travellers.
Though, if you’re in London, the best place to have a beach party is at Brixton’s rooftop bar. It’s only a 15-minute walk from our hostel. Watch the sunset from the lounge bar whilst sipping on pina colada’s, cubanitos and mojitos or salsa the night away. If you’re looking for a fun night, this is the place to be!
For those avid film-lovers, catch your favourite screening at the Ritzy Picturehouse in the heart of Brixton. It’s 15-minutes away from the hostel so there’s no chance for you to miss your screening. Hearty sit-down meals, quick bites, bar grub, it’s the best place to relax late into the evening with your friends.
